Education causes internal gov’t tensions

The education group of Hungary’s Fidesz-KDNP government alliance does not support the concept for the restructuring of Hungary’s higher education system, so the concept might have to be revised, daily Népszabadság reported.

The repudiation of the concept suggests a strong conflict between its creator, State Secretary for Education Rózsa Hoffmann and the major governing party Fidesz, the paper added.


Hoffmann, considered as KDNP’s emblematic figure, seems to have lost her political supporters, Népszabadság said.


The rift between the two parties on education issues first appeared in autumn 2010 when Fidesz’s Zoltán Pokorni criticized on Hoffmann for being too radical in her restructuring plans. (BBJ)
